Contrary to what the name may suggest, Fred and Bob is a four piece alternative rock act based in Dublin. The band play a unique tapestry of raw energy, driving bass, dynamic beats, slick catchy guitar sound and powerful ferocious yet emotional vocals of Emma Greenhalgh.

Biography

Contrary to what the name may suggest, Fred and Bob is actually a Dublin based, four-piece alternative band consisting of three girls and one boy. The hard working band has played numerous venues and festivals around Dublin and Ireland including typically energetic performances at Electric Picnic 2011 and the inaugural Camden Crawl Dublin.

Fred and Bob will launch their second EP “Anti-Gravity Love” in June. The EP recorded by Ian McNulty (Ambience Affair, Henrietta Game, Villagers) will be available via their bandcamp site.

Since 2009 Fred and Bob have consistently received strong radio support. The debut single Hex You received airplay on BBC 6 Music, 2FM, Phantom FM and Today FM. The follow up On a Good Day... EP led to a commendation from Jim Carroll (Irish Times), further airplay from Rory McConnell (BBC Radio 1) and a studio session for Dan Hegarty (2FM).

The bands most recent single, Caramel Back, cemented their position on national radio with widespread airplay on 2FM, Today FM and Phantom FM in Ireland. Growing international interest was also evident with airplay in the UK, Netherlands and the US.

Fred and Bob have been dubbed an "act to watch" by Dan Hegarty of 2FM and aim to deliver on that tag with their new EP and live performances later this year.
